that in the wake of the election there were, i mean, first of all, the catholic church has been divided in its attitude toward president obama. the catholic vote split almost down the middle, very slight lead for obama largely because of his overwhelming strength among latino catholics. i think what you have among the bishops now is a sentiment that says, "can we possibly work this out? we don't want to be in a state of war with the obama administration for four years." and i think within the obama administration you have quite a number of people who want to make sure they provide contraception coverage but don't want to be in a state of war with the church, and so i think there are going to be some real efforts to try to reach a compromise that both sides can live with, and i think that's also imperative because you're actually going to see the catholic church, along with a lot of evangelicals, working with the administration on immigration reform. i think that one of the most powerful parts of the coalition in favor of immigration reform are the christian churches, because latinos are such a
